    Pet Names

    Nameberry, would you mind if we had a section for ideas for pet names? I'm thinking that there could be a whole section on Pet Names on the Message Boards. We could help each other think of names for our pets and even sibling pets. After all pets are our babies, too!

    Re: Pet Names

    There's a thread going on in the "Tell Us What You Named Your Baby!" section about pet names. I think we should give it a try and make a whole section for it. I agree with Susan, our pets are our babies too! And also it'd be nice for people who work with animals and have to name them regularly, like me. I work at a place where we sell dalmatians and I have to come up with up to 12 names sometimes for a new litter! So I think it would be really helpful.

    btw I need help with a name for a black and white female dal to go with another female black and white puppy named Millie. Any suggestions welcomed!

    Millie and Jillie! That's silly, but it's the first thing I thought of!

    A pet names section would be a lot of fun!

    Yep, I'd be up for a pets section!
    Checkers, how about Millie and Daisy? Mille and Molly? Something sweet. But I definitely second the suggestion of Millie and Jillie - sooo cute!
    For the purposes of introducing myself: I don't really have any pets as such, but I have befriended some ducks... I've called them Ophelia and Chairman Mao. Ophelia for no particular reason, and Chairman Mao because he's the sweetest, most benevolent little bird ever and I enjoyed the contrast :)
    When I get a kitten, if she has the right temperament, I'm so calling her Wilhelmina.

    I'd also love a pet section! I have a 4 month old puppy and I definitley refer to her as my "daughter". My mom carries a picture of me holding her so she can show off her "granddaughter"...she really is part of our family. She's the reason I found this site, too! And now I'm hooked :) Thank you, Kyra :) I'm glad her name is pretty well received here, too :)

    I have this great book on pet names. One time years ago, I was looking in it and found the name "Shorty Bob". I told my husband about it. We both love that name so much

    I'm all about pet names. No children for me, just furkids! A pet name section would be great.

    Re: Pet Names

    I thought of some nice names for my next pet if it's a girl:
    Imogen nn Immie
    Francine nn Francie
    Beatrix nn Trixie
    Maxine
    Queenie
    Tallulah nn Lulah or Loolie
    Skipper
    Ginger - I am wild about the name Ginger!
    Delores nn Lola
    I don't know which one is my favorite.

    If it's a boy:
    Well, I couldn't name him Dewey because that's my cat Mokie's nn. One of his other nn's is Yaya.
    Crispin after a book about a dog called "The Dog Who Belonged to Himself". NN could be Crispy.
    Maurice
    Pompie
    Vito
    Dilly
    Crispy or Pompie is my favorite!

    Feel free to steal any of these. I would be so honored!
